    Yes, very much so. Hell I defended it and what it stands for. This does not make it some holy relic that needs protection as the SCOTUS decided correctly.

    Or attempt to display it in as many different fashions as possible? Use it's color 'theme' in as many ways as possible?

    For me this is a non-issue, Of course I don't think very highly of Palin as far as "presidential" goes but she'll never be there anyway so no worries. This is a manufactured issue that both sides are guilty of at times, the problem with Palin is she makes it so easy but not this time, this is just desperate reaching and bias. Sad part is you don't have to do this with Palin she'll give you plenty of chances.
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.

    I agree with you on this. But I don't know if Sarah Palin does.

    She is an idiot anyway. I hope people are smart enough to let her fall to the wayside where she belongs.

    I really don't think it matters, to be honest. On the list of issues I'm concerned about regarding a potential candidate or political figure head, their stance or respect of a symbol is not high. That's why you didn't hear me raving when Obama didn't put his hand over his heart during a pledge to the flag.

    One possible fashion of displaying the flag is to make toilet paper that has the flag on it. Would that be OK?

    There are only two entities, that I'm aware of, that teach proper flag etiquette.....the military and the Boy Scouts. If you haven't been part of either, you likely were never trained.

    Personally, I'm much more bothered by politicians and pundits who drape themselves in the flag in order to gain support, yet do so by violating flag code. I don't care which party the person belongs to.

    It's not that I actually care about the flag code, because I don't, but it has to do with the inherent hypocrisy that the person is engaging in when they do this.

    If someone doesn't show the flag respect, more power to 'em as long as they aren't using it as a means to self-promote.
